Ever get confused by the many different forms of government?
Cows can help explain alot... :)



FEUDALISM: You have two cows. Your lord takes some of the milk.

PURE SOCIALISM: You have two cows. The government takes them and puts them
in a barn with everyone else's cows. You have to take care of all the cows.
The government gives you as much milk they think you need.

BUREAUCRATIC SOCIALISM: You have two cows. The government takes them and
puts them in a barn with everyone else's cows. They are cared for by
ex-chicken farmers. You have to take care of the chickens the government took
from the chicken farmers. The government gives you as much milk and eggs the
regulations say you should need.

FASCISM: You have two cows. The government takes both, hires you to take
care of them, and sells you the milk.

PURE COMMUNISM: You have two cows. Your neighbours help you take care of
them, and you all share the milk.

RUSSIAN COMMUNISM: You have two cows. You have to take care of them, but the
government takes all the milk.

CAMBODIAN COMMUNISM: You have two cows. The government takes both and shoots
you.

DICTATORSHIP: You have two cows. The government takes both and drafts you.


PURE DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. Your neighbors decide who gets the milk.


REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. Your neighbors pick someone to
tell you who gets the milk.

BUREAUCRACY: You have two cows. At first the government regulates what you
can feed them and when you can milk them. Then it pays you not to milk them.
Then it takes both, shoots one, milks the other and pours the milk down the
drain. Then it requires you to fill out forms accounting for the missing
cows.

PURE ANARCHY: You have two cows. Either you sell the milk at a fair price or
your neighbors try to take the cows and kill you.

ANARCHO-CAPITALISM: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.

Politics defined


A little boy goes to his dad and asks, "What's politics?"

Dad says, " Well son, let me try to explain it this way:

I'm the breadwinner of the family, so let's call me Capitalism. Your Mom,
she's the administrator of the money, so we'll call her the Government. We're
here to take care of your needs so we'll call you the People. The nanny, we'll
consider her the Working Class. Now your baby brother, we'll call him the
Future. Now, think about that and see if that makes sense."

So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what Dad has said. Later that
night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him, and he
finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to
is parents' room and finds his mother fast asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he
goes to the nanny's room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and
sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed.

The next morning, the little boy says to to his father, " I think I understand
Politics now."

The father replies, "Good son, tell me in your own words what you think it
is."

The boy promptly answers, "Well, while Capitalism is screwing the Working
Class, the Government is asleep, the People are being ignored, and the Future
is in deep trouble."

"To the Dark side you must go" Posted by Hello

Nine Months Later

Jack decided to go skiing with his buddy, Bob. They loaded up Jack's mini
van and headed north. After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a
terrible blizzard. They pulled into a nearby farm and asked the attractive
lady who answered the door if they could spend the night.

"I realize it's terrible weather out there and I have this huge house all to
myself, but I'm recently widowed," she explained. "I'm afraid the neighbors
will talk if I let you stay in my house."

"Don't worry," Jack said. "We'll be happy to sleep in the barn. And if the
weather breaks, we'll be gone at first light." The lady agreed, and the two
men found their way to the barn and settled in for the night.

Come morning, the weather had cleared, and they got on their way. They
enjoyed a great weekend of skiing.

About nine months later, Jack got! an unexpected letter from an attorney. It
took him a few minutes to figure it out, but he finally determined that it was
from the attorney of that attractive widow he had met on the ski weekend.

He dropped in on his friend Bob and asked, "Bob, do you remember that
good-looking widow from the farm we stayed at on our ski holiday up North?"

"Yes, I do." said Bob "Did you happen to get up in the middle of the night,
go up to the house and pay her a visit?"

"Yes," Bob said, a little embarrassed about being found out. "I have to
admit that I did."

"And did you happen to use my name instead of telling her your name?"

Bob's face turned red and he said! , "Yeah, sorry, buddy. I'm afraid I did."
"Why do you ask?"

"She just died and left me everything."


Difference Between Women And Men

Difference Between Women And Men

1.NAMES

If Laurie, Linda, Elizabeth and Barbara go out for
lunch, they will call each other Laurie, Linda,
Elizabeth and Barbara.

If Mark, Chris, Eric and Tom go out, they will
affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy,
Godzilla, Peanut-Head and Scrappy.


2.EATING OUT

When the bill arrives, Mark, Chris, Eric and Tom will
each throw in a $20 , even though it's only for
$32.50. None of them will have anything smaller and
none will actually admit they want change back.

When the women get their bill, out come the pocket
calculators.


3.MONEY

A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.

A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't
need but it's on sale.


4.BATHROOMS

A man has five items in his bathroom: a toothbrush,
shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel from
the Marriott.

The average number of items in the typical woman's
bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify
most of these items.


5.ARGUMENTS

A woman has the last word in any argument.

Anything a man says after that... is the beginning of
a new argument.


6.CATS

Women love cats.

Men say they love cats, but when women aren't looking,
men kick cats.


7.FUTURE

A woman worries about the future until she gets a
husband.

A man never worries about the future until he gets a
wife.


8.SUCCESS

A successful man is one who makes more money than his
wife can spend.

A successful woman is one who can find such a man.


9.MARRIAGE

A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he
doesn't.

A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change
and she does.


10.DRESSING UP

A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the
plants, empty the garbage, answer the phone, read a
book, and get the mail.

A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.


11.NATURAL

Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.

Women somehow deteriorate during the night.


12.OFFSPRING

Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children.
She knows about dentist appointments and romances,
best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes
and dreams.

A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in
the house.


13.THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

Any married man should forget his mistakes. There's no
use in two people remembering the same thing.


AND FINALLY.....

A couple drove down a country road for several miles,
not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an
argument and neither of them wanted to concede their
position.
As they passed a barnyard of mules, jack asses, and
pigs, the husband asked sarcastically,

"Relatives of yours?"

"Yep,"the wife replied, "in-laws."

Best of Maxine!!

The Best of Maxine !!

Maxine: That Grand Old Girl!


1. Maxine on "Driver Safety" - "I can't use the cell phone in the car. I have
to keep my hands free for making gestures."

2. Maxine on "Life" - "Life is like an oven. It burns my buns."

3. Maxine on "Housework" - "I do my housework in the nude. It gives me an
incentive to clean the mirrors as quickly as possible."

4. Maxine on "Lawn Care" - "The key to a nice-looking lawn is a good mower. I
recommend one who is muscular and shirtless."

5. Maxine on "the Perfect Man" - "All I'm looking for is a guy who'll do what
I want, when I want, for as long as I want, and then go away. Or wait nearby,
like a Dust Buster, charged up and ready when needed."

6. Maxine on "Work" - "My performance at work has really improved over the
years. Now I can nail a co-worker with a paper-clip shot from a rubber band at
20 yards."

7. Maxine on "the Technology Revolution" - "My idea of rebooting is kicking
somebody in the butt twice."

8. Maxine on "Aging" - "Take every birthday with a grain of salt. This works
much better if the salt accompanies a large margarita

Routines

Every morning I get out of bed, and unknowingly, I do the same thing, day after day.

6:30 AM: Alarm clock goes off, and I hit snooze. You know, the snooze button is one of those things, I really don't understand but I use it every single day. I mean if you don't really want to wake up until 7:00, then set the alarm for 7:00. It is silly, if you really think about it. Hundreds of thousands of people set their alarm twenty of thirty minutes earlier than what they want to get up, and then use the snooze button until the time has lapsed. I know some people who set the clock ahead ten or twenty on their alarm clock so when they look at it they think it is really the time on the clock, but they know that it is set ahead so they can cheat if they feel like it. Oh well.

7:00 AM: After hitting the snooze button four times, it is time to get out of bed, and get Angela ready for school.

7:05 AM: Nature calls, run for the restroom.

7:10 AM: Angela rolls out of her bed, and sleepwalk to our bed. She wakes up her mommy, and we have two grouchy women in the house, both wanting to go back to bed.

7:15 AM: Angela is convincing that she has to go to school, and that the monster did not eat all of her clothes. Aquarius, our dog, is ready for breakfast. She now jumps into bed with mommy, and tries to get her up inorder to feed her. Mommy beckons me to feed her, and we swap jobs. She gets Angela dressed, and I feed the dog.

7:25 AM: The search for the back pack and the decision of what to take to school for snack begins. Angela wants pudding, I want her to have grapes. I am bigger than her, so I win, so I think.

7:35 AM The back pack has been located, and as I am removing her snack trash from the previous day, I notice a pudding cup, in her hand, behind her back. Low and behold, there is also an empty pudding cup in the backpack. Hmmm, wonder how that got there.

7:40 AM: Time to leave for school. We head out to the car. Aquarius runs out into the street, crosses it, and leaves a pile in the front yard of the neighbors. I get Angela into the car, head for the drivers side, open the door, and before I can get my butt in, here comes the dog. We get in, buckle up, and away we go..

7:50 AM: return home from taking Angela to school, and sit down at the computer. I goto www.victoriaadvocate.com , my daily dose of news, and on Wednesdays, I get a double dose by visiting www.cuerorecord.com , our once a week town newspaper.

Well, that is my morning. After that, it is piddle around until it is time to pick up Angela from school. Sometimes I do the laundry, wash dishes, watch a DVD movie, or go back to bed. It all depends on my mood.

Election flaw

I can remember when I was in the fifth grade. I ran for school president. It was sooo fun. I (with my mom's help) made up flyers, posters, buttons, and even tee shirts. All of the prospective presidents had to give a speech over the intercom telling why we would be goo for the position, and, like all politicians, we made promises we knew we couldn't keep. There was everything promised from extended recess to no more classes on Fridays. Anything was said to get people to vote for us. The one thing we didn;t do was tell why we thought the other people would be bad for the position. It was never about slamming the opposition. We never tried to see how bad we could beat each other up, it was always how good we could make ourselves out to be. I wish we could go back to those times. I would rather hear why someone is good for the position and what they can latigimatly do for me rather than how bad the other prospects are and what they are going to do to me. I think it is important to know how someone voted on issues in the past, it show where they stand. Furthermore, I do not think you should try to lie abot something that you know can be, and almost definatly will be, proven is wrong. When I speak about politics, people find out I am from Texas and right away call me a Bush supporter. I don't see anything wrong with it except for the stereotyping. I support whatever party is in the whitehouse aslong as they are there trying to better the country the way it needs to be done. I don;t want someone lining their pockets by using the power of the presidency. I think that no matter who is in command, they are going to screw something up. It is only human nature to make a mistake, or do something dumb. Of couse when you talk about the magnitude a mistake in the Whit House has on the country and what a mistake at home can make, there is a bit of a difference. Even Reagan, the man some claim is the best Pres. we have ever had, made mistakes as president. JFK, Roosevelt, thay all made mistakes. They all screwed something up. But they are all held higher than most of the past presidents because they also did a lot of good things for our country and for others. Anyways, back to my main point. I wish, just one time, I could turn on the radio, or open the newspaper and see something about how a candidate is qualified for a position, and what his views on the issues are, and how they are going to amend the status quo to make things better, rather than mud slingin'.

Hmmm, Have you ever wondered...

Have you ever sat there, infront of your computer, and thought, "What is in BBQ flavored Lay's potato chips??" I am sure many people havn't, but I have. It just so happens I have a bag of 'em right here in front of me. Let's see what is in them.

First and formost, potatoes Shewwww, that's a relief. Next, "corn and/or cottonseed oil." Wait a minute, you mean to tell me that the manufactures of these things, Frito-Lay, INC, don't know which oil they use? What if it is corn oil, and I am allergic to corn oil? I may get sick. Likewise, what if it is cottonseed oil? What if one or two times they use corn oil and I don't get sick, but the third time they deceide, for what ever reason, probably the going price of the oil( and we are not talking about Iraq here), to use cottonseed oil without telling their buyers? Half the planet could get sick. I think that they need to stick with one type of oil. Sugar makes three. Dextrose makes four. Maltodextrin (okay) makes five. Natrual Flavors is six. Well, something in this world with natural flavors. I bet it came from the oils.Molasses, onion powder, monosodium glutamate, autolyzed yeast, spices (vague enough for ya?), paprika, garlic powder, tomato powder (that just sounds yucky) , partially hydrogenated soybean and canola oils (that is and not and/or. Atleast they made their mind up about the hydrogenated oils), yeast, citric acid, amd mesquite smoke flavors.

WOW!! Who would have ever thought that making potato chips could be so complicated. Just remember boys and girls, never eat more than one serving at a time. For these chips it is 15 chips. Wait, that brings another question to mind. When they write 15 chips, is that 15 whole chips?? If so, then why is it that I can never find one whole chip in the entire bag? Is it so we won't try to count how many chips we are eating? Maybe there is something in the chips that they do not list that will make us eat more and more of them until we become addicted to them and can nolonger refrain from eating them all day long, and turning into great big, fat, oil covered, crumb smothered, BBQ smellin' slob. I mean, they even write on their bag,"Lay's potato chips are so irresistibe, betchya can't eat just one." That should tell you something. Oh well, I like 'em. They go great with a tunafish sandwich, and a glass of milk.

My first blog

Well, i would have to say my favorite move of all time is "Shawshank Redemption." Why you may ask. I have no clue. Many people think it is a stupid movie, I for one do not. I think the idea of a prison break that took that long to plan and exicute is great. I mena, who would have ever thought Andy would have duig a hole that big in just 6 years. And how lucky was he to get the prison cell at the end of the hall, and it also be the wet wall at that. What luck. The warden, he was a pistol. He was laundering all that money, and guess what, there was Andy, the "wife killing banker" doing the laundry. The way Andy's luck was, he could have just walked out the front gate. No need to crawl through 500 yards of foul and stinch when you have luck like that. Well, it was just a movie, and I do still like it. I wonder what else Andy could do with all that luck??
